I will not forget you!
The bond between mother and child is like no other. She may be sheepish and reclusive—but attack her child, physically or orally, and look out!
The endearment lasts a lifetime. We’ve all seen a 350-pound jock, panned by TV cameras, flash a toothy grin and mouth for millions to see, “Love you, Mom!”
The people of Zion grumbled that God had abandoned them. God rebutted: “Can a woman forget her own baby and not love the child she bore? Even if a mother should forget her child, I will never forget you” (Is 49:15).
If you ever feel deserted by God, take a peek at the next verse: “I can never forget you! I have written your name on the palms of my hands.”
The only thing stronger than
a mother’s love is God’s love.
